CheckPoint #2:  Conservation and Preservation  Provide a brief summary differentiating conservation and preservation. Preservation is more about leaving an area untouched and natural whereas conservation is about the  protection of an area, but being able to use the area’s resources at the same time.  Do you believe humans can harvest forest resources in an environmentally friendly way? Yes, I do believe humans can harvest forest resources in an environmentally friendly way. To do this, I  think for every tree that is cut down a new one should be planted. I do not, however, believe this will ever  happen. Humans are greedy and once a forest is destroyed, they decide to build on the land instead of  growing the forest back.  Should national forests, such as those where Bridger Teton is located, be left in their natural state  so that resources are not used to benefit humans?

Unformatted text preview: I do believe national forests should be left in their natural state. It is exactly like what was said in the video, this is the best of what America once was. We should be able to view and visit wildlife the way it was meant to be before humans came here and tore everything down and built homes and factories. The Bridger Teton place is also a place that shows very few signs of the modern world. Thats the beauty of it. Most people like to get away and explore nature; thats why people go camping. It would be a big risk to drill for gas and oil in this area because no one knows how much there may be. The area may have very little and it would all be for nothing anyway. There is no harm to have one area of land that is all natural....
